Last Night in Soho, Edgar Wright’s next film, got its name in a curious way and nothing more and nothing less than Quentin Tarantino had a lot to do with the process.
Just as in the press, in the cinema, the headline is also one of the most difficult parts of the job. Naming the finished product is not always easy, but there are always sources of inspiration that make this part of the job more bearable. This was the case with Last Night in Soho, the next movie of Edgar Wright.
The director revealed that it was nothing more and nothing less than the legendary Quentin Tarantino who helped him to reach that result, placing that title for his next creation. But how? Well, the latter showed the filmmaker a song of the same name, which he claimed to be “the best used in some end credits.” Hence, Wright had his epiphany. This is how the British screenwriter related it.
“Quentin was into Once Upon a Time in Hollywood , so I really hadn’t had time to tell him. And then it was in the exchanges. I said, ‘Hey, did you hear what my movie is called?’ He said, ‘Yes, I read it. I said, ‘Are you mad at me?’ He says, ‘You know what? Only you could make that movie. ‘ I said, ‘Well I’ll thank you in the end credits for giving me the song.’ He says, ‘Okay, but I have to confess it now. What I said about it being the best ending credits song for a movie that doesn’t exist is something that [la escritora, directora, productora] Allison Anders used so if you give me credit, you have to give her credit too. So on the thank you list, A to T, Allison Anders and Quentin Tarantino are the first and last people to be thanked. “
Last Night in Soho was written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith, and Diana Rigg. The film will be released in theaters exclusively on October 29.
